Best Answer

The distribution lines that supply the power have fuses or cutouts that are before the stepdown transformer that feeds the apartment. The fuse or cut out can blow one at a time,sometimes only one of the two will only be affected. They also are designed to reset automaticaly after a period of time. This is why the power will suddenly come back on. your power in the apartment is split between the two distribution lines , to balance the load.
